SINGAPORE - IPOS International and the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) announced in a press release that it will jointly offer full complimentary access to a nine-hour online training course on leveraging a company’s intellectual property (IP) assets for business growth, from April 13, 2020 to May 4, 2020, which coincides with Singapore’s COVID-19 ‘Circuit Breaker’ period. 

The course – Intellectual Property (IP) Essentials for Businesses – highlights the growing importance of IP and intangible assets (IA) as strategic business assets. The course deals with fundamentals of IP and IA including brands, technologies, design, creations and data, among others.
